The Gael Urn -Shoreline, Seasalt, Blue Shore.

The Gael Urn.  A Gaelic Royal Urn ( also available with a smaller version Keepsake Urn)

This collection represents all that is the heart of the Irish Island nation. The Gael Urn has the powerful Celtic Spiral detailed in the lid and a discrete spiral rivet on the handles, influenced by our Irish heritage and seen in our stone art from Celtic and pre Celtic times. Each Urn is unique as the glaze is hand applied individually and no two Urns are the same. The glaze color represents the greens of our land, shore. The blues represent the depths of our seas and lighter blue where the sea washes up on our beaches to meet sea moss-covered rocks along our shoreline.

Design Influence

Cremation was practiced in Ireland since c. 3,000 B.C. Many Urns have been found in locations such as Newgrange, Knowth, Dowth. They are thought to have held the remains of the Gaelic Royals, as the time and work to build such tombs would mean years of effort from hundreds of people. Some of the Urns have been found with prized belongings, such as jewelry and weapons. This style of Urn represents the stone carvings found within these famous tombs with detailing on the handles and lid.

Radek – Land and Sea- Cremation Urn Collection

He seeks his Celtic Urn inspiration from living with his family near the Fingal shoreline, bordered between an abundant sea and the most fertile land in Ireland. He has developed exception Cremation Urns. His Irish land and Sea Cremation Urn collection is appreciated by people across the globe for the design, the colors, the glazing technique, and the individuality of each and every Urn. Creating a collection that represents our Island nation with hand-worked glazes that are inspired by the Irish coastline.
He has a unique style and his heart is invested in the art of each unique creation. To create his Irish land and Sea Cremation Urn collection designs he tried many prototypes and tweaking them until he had unique creations that both represented our Celtic past and would honor the individual and family while avoiding the typical shamrock and Leprechaun for more authentic symbolism. The glazes created many chalenges as the colors needed to reflect what is found in our landscape and sea. The glazing on each Urn is carefully hand-poured and therefore each Urn has a unique glaze pattern not found in any other Urn. A winner of numerous design awards and more recently Irelands’ premier design ‘Showcase’ event and won the best ceramic design award nationally and as his works have been presented to our current president Michael D. Higgins they are in demand.
